Designed as the portable version of XtremeMark, this lightweight piece of software puts your computer's hardware abilities to the test by running benchmarks. It can generate reports as well.
As installation is not a prerequisite, you can save the program to any part of the hard disk and launch it immediately.
Another possibility is to copy XtremeMark to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, to be able to run it on any PC with minimum effort and no previous installers.
What's more important is that the Windows registry and Start menu do not get updated with new entries, and no extra files are created on the disk, leaving it clean after removal.
Simple-to-use interface and options
The interface is represented by a regular window with a plain and simple structure, where you can configure benchmark settings regarding the number of threads to execute, threads priority, quantity of operations, and report style. Results show the time taken by each thread, along with the total and global time spent.
Evaluation and conclusion
The tool carries out the benchmark pretty quickly, during which it may spike RAM. There were no kind of issues in our tests, since it did not hang, crash or pop up error messages. Thanks to its intuitive interface and options, XtremeMark can be used by anyone with ease.
